THE TRUTH ABOUT STANDARD+

standards_logo-backgroundalpha

Standard: n. a subset(s) considered by an authority or a consensus as a basis of comparison such as (a position on a scale and/or a certain measure) and/or (a principle and/or a model) and/or (a behavioral norm and/or an acceptable deviation) and/or a constant deviation from a subset(s)

 

Standards are made so that we can judge the excellence or perfection of something.

If you do something trying to be excellent or perfect then the standards will determine whether you have been successful or have come within acceptable limits of performance.

Perfection is frequently the absolute standard which few if any are capable of but it is used to measure human, plant, animal, and robotic performance.

How far from the standard your performance is determines whether it is acceptable or unacceptable and needs improvement.

Test standards are the most common ones which most of us come into contact with when we compare our performance to that of others. Who can run the fastest or throw the furthest is a measure of athletic skill but today mental skill is increasingly more important in determining the success or failure of a human in a technological society.

Reliability, durability, efficiency, ease of repair, ease of use, and beauty are standards used to judge the value of objects such as mechanical and electronic devices.

Beauty and human behavior are very subjective standards and they probably are the only ones which can’t be made into an absolute standard which will meet the test of time unchanged.

THE TRUTH ABOUT COMPARISON***

comparison-a-blog

Comparison: n. considering the similarities and/or differences in two or more sets and/or subsets

Compare two or more things and you are really analyzing the similarities and the differences in them.

In comparing two recipes the most important thing is how it tastes to you or humans whom you are trying to please. To analyze two or more recipes you look for similar ingredients and their quantity and then check for different ingredients and their quantity which also makes a difference in how something tastes.

In relationships you find out the similarities or what you have in common and then you probe and ask questions to see what the differences are and whether they will be acceptable to you or whether they are things which you can benefit from at perhaps a later date.

Most humans are biased in favor of similarities and prefer humans with similar likes and dislikes. Differences are sometimes threatening to your way of thinking and doing things so we generally try to avoid very different humans, behaviors, and activities which may seem like a threat to our lifestyle or way of doing things and thinking about the world.

Too many of us try to compare ourselves to others, especially possession comparisons, and have a weakness which is trying to keep up with other human lifestyles which only seem better. Frequently imitation can cause us much misery and disappointment because they are frequently profligate lifestyles which we can’t afford.

Comparing and analyzing human personalities is a very valuable skill. If you are always comparing someone to honest, sincere, dependable, trustworthy, competent, friendly, somewhat caring, and interesting ideal humans then you will become a good judge of character and frequently succeed in finding humans who are worth the time and attention and are potential good friends to have in your life.
